    I have decided to go dry all january. No alcohol! If i ever go off plan it is usually down to one thing...booze.

    Empty calories, bad heads, hangover munchies..is it worth it? Its days like today i envy my pregnant sober friends lol

    I am giving myself one days free pass on 18th as i will be becomming a god parent so will celebrate.

    Any body else with me?

    It would be nice to have some support and people to keep me on track. Moan to each other about saying no to ' just one' wine?!!!

    Yep..sober nye! I dnt think alcohol likes me much as it makes me feel AWFUL!! Ive bought a nice roast chicken and im going to wake up fresh, take my doggy for a walk and cook a roast dinner for hubby. :) were only at friends for a takeout but i feel i may be falling asleep by 9pm!!! Thats the only downside lol. Its saving money too! Bring it on :)

    Great! Ive had a great day not being hungover. Cleaned and sorted all my kitchen cupboards! Haha..well not exciting but if i wasnt feeling great id just slob all day with junk food!

    Are you a big drinker?

    We drink at home for no reason which us ok every now and again but it needs to stop as we spend a fortune! And all the weight i lose in the week piles back on fri - sunday...so if i can stay sober nye..i can do it anytime! Lol x

    Lol, not much but I do enjoy those yummy liqueurs in this weather. I have used syns to give myself little treats (tots) in the build up to Christmas but it is time to cut back.

    Hi everyone
    Checking in to subscribe. I did Dry November, and after the last few weeks knocking back the vino, I'm all up for a Dry January.

    Day 1 done!

    I'm away from tomorrow until Sunday and out with family during that time, so that will be my trickiest time; will have to have 'pretend' wine too, or maybe just diet coke and pretend it's got a brandy in there!! :confused:
